Cold Air 101
Ok....If I recall correctly, I have read on here that a diy intake on the 6.0 dosen't work all that well. I have been looking at a bunch of intakes and this is what I'm thinking....
All a cold air intake is is a box(not even enclosed all of the time) with a good, free flowing filter and, sometimes, a better tube going to the turbo. So here is my question.
What would be the difference if I had a nice piece of tubing mandrel bent for the intake tube and used nice boost tube connectors to hold it in....then gutted the element out of a stock filter...and used the left over housing as the "box" to put a good aftermarket filter in?
I hope someone has some insight because right now, I can't see why this wouldn't be just as efficient as some of those $350-$400+ aftermarket systems. Especially when all I would have in this one is the price of the filter and the connectors. Thanks in advance!!
